The mission of the Anesthesiology Residency Research Track is to integrate research and clinical training to develop clinician-scientists and leaders in anesthesiology research. Matched applicants receive the title Virtue Research Scholar in honor of our former Chairman, Dr. Robert W. Virtue. During the 1950s and 60s, his research was internationally recognized, and he set the foundation for the University of Colorado to be a research hub in the field of anesthesiology. Additionally, upon successful completion of residency and fulfilling your research obligations, our department will offer a $30,000 signing bonus to continue your career at CU.
We are committed to providing:
"I chose the University of Colorado because of the strong departmental track of faculty and residents successfully receiving research funding for their work and the availability of a T32 fellowship after residency. The department is incredibly supportive and provides resources that allow the opportunity to present my work at national and international conferences. The Clinical Research Scholars program was the perfect fit for gaining additional experience in clinical investigation alongside my residency training and will help me attain my goal of becoming an independent investigator and leader in Anesthesiology research."
